    This thread is definitely an overreaction. But it was far from a nothing play. Kicking someone in the chest with your skate blade has no place in the game. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before. He should get 10 games for that

    I think he gets 5 games for it and is on notice from herein. That said, i don't think Kassian really cares. He blew off the in-person meeting. He clearly doesn't give a shit about player safety.

    So if (and I understand OP is presenting a hypothetical) the Oilers don't want him because he is too much of a loose cannon, why would any other team exactly?

    Would this not imply that the Oilers would need to pay to be rid of him?

    If they only wanted to give him 5 they wouldn’t have offered him a in person hearing. He’s getting more than 5

    And every slash to the hands is 3 feet away from decapitating someone! It's true!

    If the thread involves the Oilers in any way, he’s guaranteed to be there with nothing good to say. It’s incredible, like clockwork.

    It was a really dumb play. He’ll take his punishment and move on.

    No reason to trade him.

    I am guessing you have never played hockey before. Kicking with the skate is very unusual because hockey players know the damage it can cause. Its severe. The question is whether Kassian cares.

    Regardless, he'll pay the price and come back none the wiser i guess.

    I like Kassian and dont want him to go anywhere. He did a stupid thing. He’ll get suspended for 5 or so games. Moving on.

    If Kassian was cheaper he’d be a great add for the leafs.

    Why trade him to an Eastern team? Is the fear that he would start kicking Oiler players on his return to Edmonton?

    I'm guessing you've never seen a kicking motion before.

    What if he were UFA this summer and making 1.95 mill? Oh wait, that was a month ago when he had trade value.

    Kassian is a good player. What he did last night was wrong, but for the most part Kassian plays under control. He has shown he has a temper though, and has to know what he did last night there is no excuse for ever.

    contract is un-movable now. his agent deserves a promotion for being able to leverage that out of Oilers management when everyone and their mother knows his success was a result of playing with Mcdavid.

    History of bad decisions off- ice and on-ice. no thanks.

    I wish him well though

    If he kicked a few inches higher he would have been suspended for life and facing a criminal charge 100%. its clear that there is a screw loose with this guy and that he has uncontrollable anger issues. very dangerous.

    Good player! I'd take Kassian too, but salary would have to be retained.

    I'd take him on the Caps for Panik if the Oilers retain on his contract so it's Panik @ 3.45 and Kassian @ 2.5
